Letters Extra: Telling tales?

Marilyn Mason, (Letters Extra, 23 August) writes, as if it dignifies humanism, the following:

"What does concern us is the teaching of non-scientific stories as true in science lessons, when these more properly belong in Religious Education, where they can be truthfully and honestly presented as something that some people believe."

That is precisely what Christian teachers say about secular humanist beliefs, and is a good reason why such humanism should be included as a publicly controversial faith-position in RE syllabuses.
